Over the past couple of years I have been collecting data from a survey I designed to better understand the uniqueness of the eating disorder population. Some of the responses are pretty interesting.
I’ve found that many of my patients, as well as many responders to my survey have also been diagnosed with ADD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). According to my survey, 38.5% of eating disorder victims have also been diagnosed with ADD or OCD. These mental illnesses can be the trigger or the result of an eating disorder. Thus, treatment for the eating disorder must also include treatment of contributing illnesses.
Here are the current, detailed results from my survey. If you have not yet taken the survey please do!
